Daniel Eddowes

Branch Manager & Dispensing Optician

Daniel began his career in the optical world as a Saturday boy for a high-street optical chain back in 2008. He then began to work his way up through the business, completing his qualification as a Dispensing Optician and then on to a role within management.

“I decided to join the Leightons family because a good friend of mine (another branch manager) has always spoken so highly of the company. This made me very keen to apply for the position when it arose.

I enjoy refining and developing my skills within Leightons, and having access to such a vast variety of fantastic frames and lenses will allow me to do so. I also love being integrated with a highly experienced and well-established team.

Outside of work me and my wife have recently had a son, so most of my time is spent with him which I thoroughly enjoy. I also like to swim when I can and also go for walks or hikes occasionally.”
